When it comes to installing a swimming pool, there are several options you can choose from. Both fibreglass and concrete pools have their own unique benefits, but for most homeowners, the decision is driven by their budget or personal preference.
If you are planning to install a swimming pool, keep reading to learn about the benefits of fibreglass pools over concrete:
How long do fibreglass pools last?
A high-performance fibreglass pool can last for more than 30 years, longer than any other type of pool. That’s why fibreglass pools are fast becoming the pool of choice for many Australians who want a long-lasting, no-fuss pool that’s easy to maintain.
Barrier Reef fibreglass pools exceed the Australian and worldwide standard for thickness and have a higher resistance to water penetration and damage, heat and corrosion. This makes them an excellent choice for withstanding unpredictable weather. The natural flexibility of the material means fibreglass pools can also tolerate most earth movement.
You can expect your fibreglass pool to give you, your family and friends many years of enjoyment.

Quicker to install
Are you looking to enjoy your new pool as soon as possible? If so, a fibreglass pool is the best option as it can be installed quickly.
Concrete and pebbled swimming pools can take months to install and involve lots of digging and mess, but fibreglass pools arrive ready-made and can be installed within a few weeks. This means you’ll be diving in and enjoying all the benefits of your refreshing pool before you’ve even finished inflating the pool toys!
Easy to maintain
One of the best things about a fibreglass pool is that they don’t require liner replacements or resurfacing like other pools. Barrier Reef fibreglass pools have a silky smooth gelcoat surface which prevents dirt from sticking to the shell and helps to control against bacteria and algae. This means you’ll need fewer chemicals than a concrete pool to maintain the correct pH levels of your swimming pool. The surface is also UV and chemical resistant. This makes cleaning your pool much easier, allowing you more time to enjoy swimming.
Great for kids
If you’re worried about cuts or scrapes in the pool, a fibreglass swimming pool has a smooth surface so it isn’t abrasive on sensitive skin. This makes them great for active kids who love splashing around and jumping in! For a comfortable and relaxing pool experience, a fibreglass pool is ideal, and they look amazing too!
Choosing to install a fibreglass pool means you’ll be saving energy. They’re constructed using a high-performance, sustainable glass fibre meaning a higher temperature endurance. The material naturally insulates, so they heat faster than traditional pools. Not only will you be saving money on energy to heat a pool, but you can also feel good about installing a more environmentally-friendly pool.
If you’re concerned about the cost of heating a pool, or if your pool is going to be installed in a shady location, this makes fibreglass a more affordable option in the long run.
Fibreglass pools are available in all shapes and sizes and Barrier Reef Pools offer the latest designs and features, making it easy for you to select the right pool for your yard. They can also be customised to suit the style of your home, whether you want a family-friendly pool or a designer pool for a designer home. The gelcoat surface comes in a variety of shimmer and royal colours for you to choose from. Not only will your new pool make you feel good, it’ll look good too.
